Unfortunately, Vin Scelsa is feeing under the weather on this early spring Saturday. So on tonight's "Idiot's Delight"® at 8, I'll be minding Vin's show with a globetrotting mix of music that I hope he might enjoy (with a bowl of chicken soup), including Samaris (pictured), Juana Molina, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Kevin Drew, Tiny Ruins and Esperanza Spalding.
